Ayurveda is an ancient form of Indian medicine. One of the techniques used for diagnosis of various diseases in this system is the ‘3-point pulse’ technique. A training module is proposed which simulates these three pulse points on a dummy arm. An electromechanical setup is developed using DC motors. Frequency and Amplitude characteristics of the human pulse are accurately reproduced by the simulator. A calculated input to the motors is provided through a micro-controller based GUI front end. Application extensions for telemedicine and remote patient monitoring are also discussed. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2007.
